About Baku

Baku, the political, cultural and economic capital of Azerbaijan, is one of the most beautiful, yet  relatively unknown destinations in the world. The city and the port of Baku stand proudly on the western side of the Caspian Sea, with a skyline comprised of nineteenth-century European palaces along with ultramodern glass buildings. The city has a rich history from the medieval age as a Persian capital, which fell to the Russian conquest. Its glory days began when oil wells were dug in the city, and then it gradually changed to the present version which is the perfect blending of the Orient and the Occident. Baku, with a UNESCO world heritage site, attracts all kinds of tourists, from history buffs to food vloggers and party people.
